How Fiberglass Compares to Other Insulation Products
Fiberglass batts offer an R-value of between 3.1 and 3.4. Fiberglass offers similar performance to cellulose, mineral wool and open-cell spray foam, though it has a lower R-value than closed-cell spray foam. No special equipment is required to install fiberglass batts, but they do shed irritating fibers that can make your skin itch.

Pros & Cons of Fiberglass
Batt insulation offers excellent insulation at a cost-effective price, and they can be installed in very little time with no specialty tools. Fiberglass particles can be irritating to the skin, nose and mouth, however, and it is recommended that a mask be worn during installation.

Fiberglass Loose-Fill/Blown-In Insulation
Often referred to as blown-in insulation—based on its method of installation—loose-fill fiberglass insulation is a collection of loose fibers or nodules that are blown into the wall cavity or attic. Blown-in fiberglass insulation requires specific industry designed equipment that agitates, expands and distributes the fiberglass to its desired depth. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is recognized for its continuous coverage, flexibility and ability to fit into tight or low crevices.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fiberglass Insulation
What happens if you touch fiberglass insulation?
Fiberglass particles can embed into your skin if you touch fiberglass insulation. Afterward, your skin will be quite itchy. After a few showers, however, most of the particles will be gone and the irritation will subside.
Is fiberglass insulation dangerous?
Fiberglass insulation can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, so it is best to wear a respirator while installing or handling it. It is reliably safe otherwise.
How do I choose what type of fiberglass insulation to install?
If you have evenly spaced studs, joists or rafters that need to be insulated, fiberglass batts are probably the best choice. For finished walls, floors, or irregularly-shaped areas, blown-in fiberglass may be the better option.
Where are the best places to install fiberglass?
Fiberglass batts are ideal for installation between joists, wall studs and other framing members. Fiberglass provides excellent insulation for walls, ceilings, floors and more.
